Using Team Chat

If there’s a rainout or a last-minute field change, want to coordinate a carpool, or tell everyone where the celebratory pizza party is happening, this is the place to do it. 

Head on over to the Team Chat, which you can find under Messages, and simply start typing or sharing photos! It’s the perfect place for pre- and post-game banter, last-minute strategy or your favorite funny cat pictures. Adding a new member to your team? They will automatically have access to Team Chat and will be able to see previous messages that were posted. 

Team Chat is currently an all-or-nothing feature. You will not be able to send a chat to a specific group of people on your team. So before you start chatting about that perfect end of season coach's gift, remember everyone with access to the team who has downloaded the mobile app to their device will be able to read your chat messages.
